Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Acrylic-based or metal-based dentures are artificial teeth that replace missing or newly extracted teeth to improve your smile and self-confidence. Additional benefits of choosing dentures at McCarthy Dental include clearer speech, easier chewing, and better facial symmetry. 


Am I a good candidate for dentures?

To find out if dentures are right for you, the team at McCarthy Dental reviews your oral health history, asks about symptoms you might be experiencing, examines your teeth and gums, and takes digital X-rays. They also discuss your preferences, lifestyle, and desired outcome.


What are the different types of dentures?

Some of the custom dentures available at McCarthy Dental include:

Partial dentures

Partial dentures replace just some missing teeth, rather than all of your natural teeth.

Immediate dentures

Your dentist can insert immediate removable dentures the same day as your teeth extractions, so you don’t have to go without teeth while your jaw and gums heal.

Conventional dentures

Conventional dentures are removable dentures that replace all of your natural teeth. You take them out at night when you sleep.

Overdentures

Overdentures fit comfortably over some remaining natural teeth used to stabilize and support your dentures.

Implant-supported dentures

Titanium posts in your jawbone hold implant-supported dentures securely in place, so you don’t have to worry about them slipping. Some implant-supported dentures are removable, allowing you to snap them in and out as needed.

The McCarthy Dental team always has your best interest in mind. They customize each set of dentures to match your mouth’s structure and your lifestyle, goals, and preferences.


How should I care for my new dentures?

Clean your dentures daily to reduce bacteria, staining, and bad breath. Rinse dentures before brushing them to remove food particles. Use a non-abrasive cleanser or toothbrush to clean the surface of your dentures. Don’t forget to brush your gums, tongue, roof of your mouth, and cheeks.

When you’re not wearing your dentures, store them in water or a dentures solution as directed by your dentist. Call McCarthy Dental if your dentures get damaged or stop fitting comfortably, and attend all routine six-month dental checkups.
